Class Description

This course utilizes Lego Education's go-to Steam learrning tool Spike prime set that will build upon students' software and hardware skills. We will use a drag-and-drop coding language based on the Scratch laguage. Students will also use the option to explore text-based coding with Python in this course. Students will continuously be engaged through thought-provoking challenges and learning activities regardless of their learning level. Our lessons will challenging students to brainstorm, collarborate, process information, develop software and hardware to achieve their goals.
